England: Marcus Rashford withdraws from squad with ankle injury

How is England expected to line up vs Czech Republic for the Euro 2020 qualifiers? Marcus Rashford misses full England training

Both Kyle Walker and Trent Alexander-Arnold are expected to fight for the right-back role but we feel it should be the Man City man who will get the nod on Friday for the Euro 2020 qualifiers vs the Czech Republic.

Four England internationals pulled out earlier this week due to injuries and have returned back to respective clubs.

Asked what boxes Hudson-Odoi has ticked to convince him that he is ready to play for England, Southgate replied: "Ability and mentality".

The incident has overshadowed Rice's first England call-up since making the decision to switch worldwide allegiance from Republic of Ireland, but Southgate said it will not affect the 20-year-old's chances of featuring at Wembley.

Southgate would not confirm that the precocious Borussia Dortmund forward would make his first competitive start, surprising his audience by stating that he would be quite prepared to select either Sancho or Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi.

"If we looked at the likes of [Michael] Owen, [Marcus] Rashford, [Raheem] Sterling, a lot of those attacking players do go in pretty young", he explained. "Particularly not for a young lad who never dreamed of being in this position".

I won't hesitate to start either of them in the game.

Following the game with the Czech Republic, England travel to Podgorica to face Montenegro on Monday. 'But, certainly, when you were looking at what the next few years could look like, and you knew that the team who had won the Under 20s World Cup and the team who had won the 17s and the 19s Euros, there were some really exciting players. I've played there in the youth setup, but I had to make a decision that was best for me.

"Throughout the age groups they've been very similar in their development".

Gareth Southgate has confirmed that England will be without Marcus Rashford for Friday's game against Czech Republic.

"Expectation will change and things like that, but that is good for us, as long as we know what we want to do and achieve as a group that will be really important", he said.

"We'll have some players come through that will surprise us and, frankly, are going to excite the public because when they see them play, they're going to be excited by what they've seen because we are".
